BLUEPRINT HOLLYWOOD: Designing for the Digital Age

New media makers are strategizing daily to harness the power of digital opportunities to produce, market and distribute product. Old studio paradigms are cracking under the pressure. New blueprints are needed as an era of social media and digital technology make entertainment and information more personal and customized than ever.

Change isn’t coming. It’s here. NOW is the time to strategize a new design for the future of entertainment. As these mediums morph to success, NOW is the time to plan successful inroads.

The 2008 Biola Media Conference gives you an All Access Pass to the top Christian professionals in film, television and digital media. This innovative event on the CBS Studio Center lot in the heart of Hollywood's Studio City is designed to explore the evolving opportunities. What’s working? What’s not? How is it financed? Where is potential profit? How will these changes impact your career, your future, your message?
